I wish _all_ messages would display ala minibuffer-message when the
user's editing in the minibuffer -- the current behavior (temporarily
ovewriting the minibuffer to show messages) is stupid and annoying,
especially given that many errors one gets are fairly trivial or

I made a patch to do this sometime before Emacs 21 was released, and
recall various issues popping up though... I think mainly it was the
somewhat more exotic users of message, like quail completion info etc.
